Lady in red!

"Telephone" singer Lady Gaga met up with fashion designer Donatella Versace in Milan, Italy, October 1. Surrounded by dozens of photographers and admirers, the 26-year-old pop star wore a sexy, skin-baring red Versace dress featuring multiple cut-outs.

The flashy outing comes just weeks after the New York native told radio host Elvis Duran she recently "gained like, 25 pounds." Though she said she doesn't "feel bad about" putting on weight, the 5-foot-1 "Just Dance" singer revealed she's "dieting" to get back in shape.

Indeed, her trainer, Harley Pasternak, tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now), "She will slim down. But whatever weight she's at, she looks phenomenal!"

Though her weight gain made headlines, Gaga used it as an opportunity to speak about positive body image via her website, Little Monsters.

"I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days. Gratitude mostly. Seeing you post photos of things on your bodies and in your minds that you feel society tells you you should be ashamed of. You are showing them you have no shame," the Grammy Award winner wrote. "Watching you all create a safe space online for people to be compassionate is the greatest gift you could ever give me."

Gaga added that her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, 31, "prefers me curvier. When I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I'm happy. Happier than I've ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny."

"This is who I am," she added. "And I am proud at any size."
